I wanted to let him through but I was having fun chasing the S3! It did quite well but I really was pushing quite hard. I need to sort out an anti-roll bar for it (some custom fabrication needed) and some new shocks / springs (h&r kit) and it'd be a real track weapon. (and an engine rebuild too ;) )

sounds like a plan, what sort of power do you have now?, were you trying when the impreza overtook you?

Engine spec is on the video description. Maybe around 140-150bhp. I wasn't reving past 5500rpm as my charger has done about 45k miles at a 2x drive ratio (standard is 1.6). Big cars are a lot lot quicker on a track, different story on the road!

Good to see a good quality G40 track video, most are full of wind noise.  Would love to see one with a mic in the engine bay for the charger noise.


Nice driving!   ;D
